HealthFlex is offering free at-home COVID-19 tests to those receiving health insurance benefits through the Desert Southwest Conference. Each covered member can receive up to 8 free COVID-19 at-home tests per month without a prescription.  Covered tests must be approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Many packages include two tests, and for these only four packages will be covered per month, for a total of eight tests.

HealthFlex participants can order at-home COVID-19 tests at no cost from the Optum Store online. Participants also can bring their HealthFlex ID card to the pharmacy counter at Sam’s Club, Walgreen’s or Walmart to obtain at-home COVID-19 at no cost, or can be reimbursed for tests purchased online or through other retailers. 

Wespath has created a new video that walks you through the process of obtaining the free COVID-19 tests. 

At-home COVID tests can also be ordered at no cost from the Federal Government from covidtests.gov, with a limit of 4 tests per residence.
